The name ARINC is an abbreviation for Aeronautical Radio Incorporated from Annapolis , Maryland , USA . The company has existed since 1929 and has made a name for itself in the past few years, especially in the aviation and avionics sector , with the fact that a number of communication protocols between different computer systems have been standardized on the basis of ARINC's recommendations. There is hardly any difference between civil and military use; ARINC has defined standards for both versions.
The best known is probably the ARINC 429 standard . Airbus and Boeing planes use this protocol to interconnect different systems. The standard for navigation data is defined with the ARINC-424 protocol . This defines the data format for the exchange of navigation data between nav data providers ( Lufthansa Systems FlightNav AG (formerly LIDO Flight Nav), Jeppesen Sanderson , EAG ) and avionics manufacturers ( Honeywell , Smith, Rockwell Collins etc.). Another common standards are ARINC 615 and specifically designed for the Boeing 777 developed ARINC 629 protocol , an evolution of the ARINC 429 protocol. The ARINC-664 protocol, known as AFDX, is based on the Ethernet standard that is widely used outside of aviation . It is used in the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 , among others .
The ARINC company has a similar status in America to the IEEE consortium. It defines generally applicable standards and also operates commercial development and services.
